, president obama and governor romney gearing up for what could be a make or break first presidential debate. plus, the u.s. supreme court begins a brand new term very his that could effect us all. >> gay marriage, affirmative action, voting rights. those just a few of the controversial issues that the top court is expected to tackle. but tonight could the healthcare law be back on the agenda? plus the u.s. military suffered its 2,000th death in afghanistan. three more american troops are dead in a bomb attack tonight, what the latest could mean for the america's war. >> and does anybody remember where we parked the car? but first from fox this monday night. the race for the white house both president obama and the republic presidential nominee mitt romney are out west right now getting ready for their first debate this wednesday. there are a total of three presidential debates scheduled. the first one at the university of denver set to focus on domestic issues. it comes as the new national poll from "the washington post and abc news finds president obama leading 499% to 47% nationally. that
into the debates was 8 points down. so it's not a done deal. secondly the media loves to trumpet the mitt romney gaffes or mistakes or misstatement. of course, we haven't stopped hearing about the 47% remark. yet moment when obama says things like, you didn't build it if you built this business, you didn't build it, the media trumpets or takes on the white house talking points and claims that it was taken out of con detective by his critics. if you look at what he said it wasn't taken out of context at all. megyn: when you watch the clip it's clear he was making a joke. but a lot of people see those headlines and hear rachael maddow and walk away thinking the man is a moron. >> the real bias in the press is not that they sit around calculating how to hurt republicans. it's because they largely share the framework of liberal democrats. so their idea of what is news largely fits that of the white house. that leads to the second problem which is just sheer volume. when a republican commits a gaffe, and it seems only republicans are capable of gaffes according to the press today, it's picked up ever

related to the first presidential debate saying governor mitt romney's performance against the president could very well change the entire race. but how important are presidential debates and how much do they really shape the outcome in november? we heard a lot. joining me someone who has done research on polling impact of past debates. larry sabato, director of center for politics at the university of virginia. larry, historically speaking how big of a deal are the first debates really? >> well it can be a dig deal, jenna. of course governor christie was right. he got off message as you know because part of the amusing previous view to a presidential debate is the attempt by both sides to run down their own candidate. about how horrible a debater they are and the other side is so terrific. so governor christie may be committed a behalf by telling the truth. if you look historically, there is a pretty good chance that mitt romney can make up some ground. usually, not always, but usually the challenger to the incumbent just by standing on the stage and doing a credible job, can make up so
that, of course, was with the great debate coach who then got let go by the romney camp. >> we'll see. i still think you don't want to be responding, you want to be laying out your views, and you want to be prosecuting the president. he needs to go in there with the mind of a tough-minded district attorney who's trying to prosecute the guy who he wants to be on trial, not defending himself. megyn: the two harvard law school graduates, romney also was a harvard mba, will square off and try to tell americans that they're very relatable. [laughter] we'll look forward to that. all right, chris, thank you. >> thank you. megyn: well, these debates, i mean, they're great theater for the american public, and they really do help a lot of americans decide whether it's just a visceral reaction or i like that guy better, they help americans decide. and a lot of the times it's the gaffes that turn people against the candidates. these campaigns, they're searching for the one defining moment, but of course they're also hoping it won't be an awkward one that sinks their campaign. recall 1992 when pre
and the economy is set to be the topic of wednesday's presidential debate and mitt romney is going to try it tout his record at bain capital for a reason to pick him. the democrats are trying to peck up people who used to work bain capital, and a part of the election season, he was featured on a conference call with the now infamous, joe southic, a former employer of a bain company that later on claimed that mitt romney indirectly killed his wife and mitt romney deputy campaign manager stephanie cutter claemd not to remember and we also heard from mr. foster at the democrat national convention earlier this month. >> bain took over the bill, they loaded it up with millions in debt and within months, they used some of that money to millions, within a decade the debt kept growing and was so large the company was forced into bankruptcy. . >> as it turns out, mr. foster was actually regional director for the steel workers union who worked with gst steel, but not at gst steel and as there are two sides to every story. one former executive at gst steel says that what really happened when bain capital ca
expectations for the first presidential debate next week, in a memo sent to quote interested parties, romney campaign senior adviser, bette myers said, quote, president obama is a uniquely gifted speaker and widely regarded as one of the most talented communicators in modern history. this will be the eighth one of on one presidential debate of his political career. for mitt romney, it will be his first, end quote. really? obama is a more gifted speaker than oh, ronald reagan? paul steinhauser joins me now. you have the memo. read me more, we want to know. >> interesting not just the campaign doing this, the candidates lowering expectations. take a listen to mitt romney himself over the campaign trail the last couple of days. >> he's president of the united states. he's a very effective speaker. >> he's a very eloquent speaker. so, i'm sure, in the debates as last time with senator mccain, he'll be very eloquent. >> reporter: what they're trying to do is lowering the bar, expectations, so if mitt romney does better in this debates next wednesday in denver. >> caller: they will say it's a grea
are talking of the upcoming debates and romney's best chance to turn things around. this is newt gingrich. >> i think it depends almost entirely on mitt personally. i debated him and most of them i did pretty well. the last two down to life and death and we were in florida and he was in danger of losing the nomination, he came in fired up, decisive, prepared, aggressive, energetic and to be honest i think he beat me both times. if he would be as direct, as assertive, as firm with barack obama as he was with me in florida he'll win the debate going away and within three days the polls will change dramatically because he'll have begun to make the case we cannot afford four more years of barack obama. >> so that first debate is next wednesday in denver and did you know that early voting has begun? for the first time today voting in a swing state, iowa. guess who's there, john king. iowa city, iowa. john, are you seeing many early voters where you are? >> reporter: we have seen quite a few of them, brooke. we had a camera here in iowa city and des moines earlier today. i wouldn't say it's gan
. also, what it's like to debate mitt romney. newt gingrich knows and he'll tell us about that and more. and after a multimillion dollar makeover, what's supposed to be one of washington's most beautiful sites is an ugly eyesore. wolf blitzer's off today. i'm joe johns. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with one of the states that in just 41 days could decide the presidential election, ohio, is so important both to president obama and mitt romney campaigning there this afternoon. and there's more of a backdrop than just the early autumn trees. a brand new quinnipiac/cbs "new york times" poll has the president a full ten points ahead of romney in ohio. 53% to 43%. let's begin with cnn white house correspondent dan lothian. >> reporter: joe, even though a new poll shows the president with a double digit lead in ohio, mr. obama continues to push hard in the state. it's a huge priority for the campaign according to a top aide. by our count the president has visited ohio at least 13 times so far this year. this time ahead of early voting, which by the way begins next tuesday. now,
" is someone who's had plenty of experience debating mitt romney. former presidential candidate newt gingrich. mr. speaker, thanks so much for coming into "the situation room." >> thank you. glad to be with you. >> want to show you poll of polls as we call it in ohio and florida. ohio likely voters 51% said they'd vote for obama. 44% for romney. and the poll of polls september 16th through the 24th in florida, 50% said they'd vote for the president, 45% for mitt romney. why do you think it is that mitt romney doesn't seem to be resonating in these critical states at least so far? >> well, i think he has three or four big challenges. one is that for a long period the obama campaign dramatically outspent romney in resiesly those states driving home their image of who romney is. the second is that the romney campaign is yet to find a thematic way of explaining itself and laying out in a clear crisp way the difference between romney and obama. and i think that frankly is a problem. and there's an ironic third problem. both these states have republican governors. both these governors have been doi
. >> reporter: less than one week from his debate withhe president, romney is trying to expand the election map boldly predicting twice during his visit to pennsylvia that he can win here. >> you know, i've got l secret here. and that is that obama campaign thinks pennsylvania's in their pocket. they don't need to worry about it. and you're right and they're wrong. we're going to win pennsylvania. we're going to take the white house. >> reporter: it could be a questionable move. not only does romney have ground to make up in swing states like ohio and florida, the latest cnn poll of polls in pennsylvania shows romney trailing the president by ten points. republicans have tried but failed to win pennsylvania in recent presidential elections. just ask john mccain who made his own last-ditch effort. >> there's just one day left until we take america in a new direction. we need to win in pennsylvania tomorrow. with your help we will win. >> reporter: now, it's unclear what kind of resources romney would put into pennsylvania when asked whether the campaign would buy any ads here, romney aide said
at a time where there's a debate about ongoing health care in this country. mitt romney in a "60 minutes" interview was asked, going to an emergency room is an option for the uninsured. listen to that clip quickly. >> does the government have a responsibility to provide health care to the 50 million american whose don't have it today? >> well, we do provide care for people who don't have insurance. people -- if someone has a heart attack, they don't sit in their apartment and die. we pick them up in an ambulance and take them to the hospital, and give them care. and different states have different ways of providing for that care. >> for those people you were profiling there are in your film, was that their only option, that particular waiting room in that particular hospital and that level of care? >> for the vast majority of the community, it's the only place they know where to go. the safety net system, the last resorts in oakland and all over the country. there are a patchwork of clinics you can go to but for the most part, highland has the ability to the deal with factors like langua
to be a busy few days for mitt romney. he's going to be in ohio today, virginia tomorrow and heading into debate prep, as you know. the first presidential debate next wednesday, one week from today. >> a busy few days for jim acosta, too. >> thanks, jim. >> literally, rolling through ohio this morning. so cool. >>> we are now joined by rudy giuliani, of course, the former mayor of new york city. a former presidential candidate himself and important to note this morning also a support every supporter of mitt romney. i would like to greet you with the polls from the key swing states. ohio, florida and pennsylvania. >> this is someone who in 2004 sat, i think, in the cnn studio about 6:00 in the evening, and the exit polls had john kerry winning 66%. the day of the election. not cnn. fox, abc, nbc. i was on nbc with senator kennedy discussing with tom brokaw the cabinet john kerry was going to pick. so -- >> the polls are all wrong? a ten-point lead? >> the poll's not wrong. but a poll can be a sample of the 2008 election instead of a sample of the 2010 election, and i don't know what t
